Analog DnB Drumtrax

Published on Jul 13, 2016 HardtekStudios

"Preparing some drums for a future collaboration. The Tom Cat's output is routed into the Freqbox then out of it into the MF Drive. All of this is recorded into Logic with absolutely no post processing. The Freqbox's envelope follower is also controlling the MF-Drive's filter frequency."

Minilogue - Electribe - Aira - Trance - analogue session - Empty Life?

Published on Jul 13, 2016 marcus kautz

"This time we had fun making some commercial trance sound. Not everybodys taste, but hearing it loud, its a lot of fun. We enjoyed this session a lot. Basics from Electribe 2, the rest is a lot of improvisation. Samples from - thanks for the inspiration. Gear list at the end of the vid. Thanks for watching and listening. We are happy about comments - and - of course about critics also! Its just a hobby, but a great one! ;-)"

My Life With The Thrill Kill Kult " A Daisy Chain for Satan"

Published on Nov 14, 2013 shockedthemonkey

"From the 1990 album 'Confessions of a Knife'"

One from my "childhood". Apologies to Marcus if this video is a distraction to his. It was one of those "why does this sound familiar" moments. The female vocal sample, the bassline and general progression. It was on the tip of my tongue, so I went looking, found it, and had to include it. Enjoy. Or not. The classic horror movie masks in Marcus' video do help tie it altogether. Also, this appears to be post #36 for the day - 3 x 6 for 666! Glad another post came in up top, otherwise I'd be spooked going to bed tonight!

Logan Vocalist Analog Choir Synthesizer (1979)

Published on Jul 13, 2016 RetroSound

"(c) 2016 vintage synthesizer demo by RetroSound

Logan Vocalist analog choir synthesizer from the year 1979

Rare like stardust and maybe one of the most interesting human voice synths ever. Made in Italia.

The sound is a bit like the Roland VP-330 human voice section but you have a lot more possiblities with the 3 vowel filters, the envelopes and mixing the different sounds.

The demo video shows the 3 different human voice sound sections (Tenore, Soprano and Solo)

6 voice polyphonic, Vibrato speed and depth and a lot more"

Slew Rate Mod on Minimoog Voyager - Comparison

Published on Nov 5, 2012 Themaktimas Elektrokanal

"I had my Voyager slew-rate-updated recently. Having the possibility to compare a "clean" machine to the modded one, I try to shed more light on its effect by using an oscilloscope.

The video is focussing on the visible differences rather than on the audible ones. However, I believe the mod has siginificant impact on the Voyager´s sound, and I try to give an example for that at the end of the vid which should make the versions distinguishable even though youtube is compressing audio heavily."

"Symphony Electronica Mov I 'In Peril' beauty as destructive forces threaten, then the struggle begins... Another improvisation in my Blue Mountains photo gallery today. This is part of a development of pieces and is going to be one of three movements as backing tracks to some acoustic overlays - mostly guitar, sax and harp."

THE ETERNAL RAIN ~ Analog Electronica 40 minute Jam / Improv

Published on Jun 4, 2016 Gary Hayes

"Performed live in one take during a gallery open day in Gary's photographic studio/gallery in Mount Victoria, Blue Mountains. A traditional analog sequencer based impro with downward chordal progressions. The Electron Analog 4 is used for two sequences, main bass and lead with strings, the Roland System 1 for pad and various sequences, the strings are from the Warm Pad preset on Ensoniq MR Rack and finally the Kaoss Pro for leads and analog colouration. At full instrumentation there are six sync'd sequences. The audio has been mastered through Izotrope Ozone."

Doepfer Dark Energy filtered by Vermona Perfourmer Analog Synthesizer

Uploaded on Jan 17, 2010 Themaktimas Elektrokanal

"The Doepfer Dark Energy is a powerful little synth. It becomes even more powerful, though, when hooked up with the Vermona Perfourmer analog polysynth. The Perfourmer can act as a filterbank for external signals. But what makes it really cool is that you can use the 'Poly' mode to apply individual filter and envelope settings to sequential steps. Lets you add lots of variety to the anyway lively basic sound of the Dark Energy, indeed. With a little more practice, I´m sure I can get much better results than in the video. Gotta love these analog machines."

Patch Notes #5 - Ornament & Crime Harrington 1200 Mode

Published on Jul 13, 2016 Voltage Control Lab

"Patch Notes from our recent exploration of the Neo-Riemannian chord generating Harrington 1200 mode in the Ornament & Crime Eurorack module.

Tempi is the central clock, first routed to the X clock in on René in snake mode, which is playing back an 8 step pattern. QCV output is routed to CV 1 input on Ornament & Crime as the root note source sequence.

O&C is routed to 3 oscillators, Mutable Braids, Malekko Richter Anti-Oscillator and Sputnik Oscillator, each sending a triangle wave shape through the three channel inputs on the Make Noise Optomix, which is acting as a mixer in this case.

The mixed output is sent to the Make Noise MMG Filter in Low Pass mode and then through another homemade VCA, both modulated by the two envelopes on the Intellijel Dual ADSR.

Tempi is also clocking Pressure Points via Brains, which is controlling chord inversion on the O&C.

Tempi is clocking the Varigate 4 as well, which is routed to trigger a Malekko Dual Borg Filter Kick, a snare in the Basimilus and a hihat in the Scooper. The 4th output is randomizing hits and repeated triggers on the Dual ADSR, to give the chords some more complex rhythmic action.

All of these sounds are mixed through the Mix4, and then through Warps Parasite delays. I think that's it!"

Novation Circuit Groovebox with Sample Import Demo

Published on Jul 13, 2016 SweetwaterSound

"Enrique Martinez from Novation demonstrates some updated features for the Circuit Groovebox, including sample importing. Once you start making music with the Novation Circuit synthesizer workstation, it's sure to become a fixture in your rig. In fact, this standalone groove box, with its onboard synthesizers and drum machine, can easily be your entire beat-production rig, and since it can run on battery power, the Circuit will let you create music anywhere. Onboard, you'll find a pair of Nova-style synthesizer engines loaded with killer sounds, plus a 4-part rhythm section and a 4 x 8 matrix of wonderfully playable RGB pads."

Inspired by a couple of live improvisation I've recorded this ambitious piece of noise live with my Zoom H4n ...

Volca FM arp demo, Drax - Amphetamine live remix

Published on Jul 13, 2016 Tony Horgan

"The best Volca FM demo to date, according to me. A live remix of a classic 90s hard trance track, made with a Korg Volca FM, Volca Keys, Roland Aira TR-8, TT-303 Bass Bot and a THC-00 Resinator analogue filter. I previously recorded the riff into the Volca Keys in Flux mode by sending it MIDI notes from Ableton Live. This allows for longer and more complex patterns in a single pattern on the Volca Keys. Everything else was programmed on the hardware. Everything is played by the internal sequencers on each unit."
